## Homework Statement

Draw the shear force and bending moment diagrams for the beam shown in Fig. 1 below. Determine the maximum tensile and compressive bending stresses and the positions at which they occur. The beam’s cross-sectional area is shown in Fig. 2.

## Homework Equations

Bending Stress = Mc/I

Where I is inertia, c is distance from neutral axis, M is the bending moment

## The Attempt at a Solution

I have drawn the shear and bending moment forces and worked out the moment of inertia in the T-section. But I am unsure how I work out the maximum tensile and compressive bending stresses.

How do I apply this.

Thanks.
